Kevin Gritton

School Improvement Team

We have a highly experienced School Improvement Team who work closely with our schools to develop educational excellence and ensure that our 8,000 pupils receive high quality Catholic education rooted in our gospel values.

Our pupil-centred approach is ambitious for all. We work with our staff collaboratively to develop expertise and provide evidence-based research approaches to the delivery of a curriculum that meets the needs of the pupils in our care.

Our team consists of a full-time Director of Performance and Standards (Secondary) and a team of three Directors of Performance and Standards (Primary). They regularly visit and support the schools to establish strengths and areas for development, and then work with staff using strategies for improvement that empower leaders to be the drivers for sustainable change.
